“Excellent location”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

Quite an unusual hotel as it was located on the 2 topmost floor of a commercial building with tuition centres and offices. I think all the room has no windows (or the windows are the floor to ceiling glass panels that let in daylight through the bathroom). If you are looking for a clean and centrally located hotel that you only intend to use to spend the night, this is the right hotel!

Hotel more like a hostel as it is on the 10th and 11th floor of an office building. Nice design. However, room smeled tremendousely after cockroach balls! Could hardly sleep. Provided machine to reduce smell was too loud to run over the night. Hardly to recommend! Some rooms without windows and if yes, no possibility to open windows. I chose another hotel for my next stay.

The hotel is relatively new, comfortable and clean. Excellent location as it is near taipei MRT station, train station, and plenty of breakfast places in the morning right at the doorstep at level 1. Having said that, this hotel doesn't provide breakfast, which is excellent as you get a chance to try out local breakfast that the locals have. You can easily get breakfast at about 1USD. Self service washing machine/dryer + welcome coffee at their lounge ups the factor too.

The staff replies email really quickly, so it helps with any planning. It is cheaper if you book directly through them at their website: www.hotelrelaxclub.com

Downside is that the rooms are at level 10 and 11 and are serviced by 2 lifts. On weekends evenings, the lifts may be crowded as many students will take the lift to tuition centres on the lower levels. But not a big issue.

Stayed in Hotel Relax for a week during my stay in Taipei since 5th November 2013. The place is quite nicely situated for ease for trips. These are some tips.

1. Z4 is 1 of the nearer exits to the hotel. Once out, you will see a shopping mall called Shin Kong Mitsutoshi and a mcdonalds next to it. The hotel is at the mcdonalds.

2. Now there are pillars indicating how to get to the hotel. Just look out for the pillars near the macs.

3. The hotel is situated near to the blue line, ease of travelling to Ximending and Taipei 101. The Danshui line though is located abit further, but still walkable distance from the hotel looking at the signboards.

4. Hotel room is quite nicely built, sufficient space for 2 with additional purchases. The coffee and tea which is complimentary in the hotel room is good also. Nice to make a cuppa when in the hotel before your day.

5. Though there are no breakfast, one may go level 11 to ask the hotel attendant for recommendations of breakfast, They have a map which shows the nearby recommended breakfasts and other attractions. Pretty handy. I used it to locate the Yong He stall which is located around a 10-15 mins walk from the hotel.

6. After your trip out, locate for Shin Kong Mitsutoshi at Taipei Main Station and Metro line, as the whole TMS is pretty big and easy to get lost with its TRA, HSA, Dansui Line, and Beitou Line. Hence if you are travelling by train and wish to locate back to hotel, look for signboards indicating Shin Kong Mitsutoshi or the z-front stalls. These 2 would assist much greatly to the hotel's nearest exit.

7. In addition, the place is also near Taipei West Bus Station, for ease of leaving Taipei to Taoyuan Airport. At Taipei West Bus Station, there is a Guo Kuang bus (Only can purchase on the spot) to go to Taoyuan Airport (Exit Z3, which is near the hotel's nearest metro exit also).

For such low price and well located hotel, plus hotel is nicely built and furnished, nothing much else to complain about!

Didn't actually realize this property is so new, booked it through booking.com. The location is really good, 2 minutes walk from Taipei station Z4 or Z6. The airport shuttle bus station is just across the street at Z5. The entrance is tricky to find - it is next to McDonalds, in a lobby shared with tuition centers in the building, the elevator is nondescriptive and doesn't really help in telling you the hotel is inside the building. So we did make some effort in spotting that tiny sign on a pillar outside the lobby.... the hotel occupies 2 floors in the building. The design is modern and luxurious, bathroom spacious, bedding very comfortable. No windows in row of rooms not facing the street. Free coffee (but they need to make it for you with the capsule machine) next to reception. Attentive service from staff. Let us kept our luggage there the day before we checked in.
Downside - during peak hours (after school or when students leave from tuition), the elevators take forever to come. And if you live on the different floor, to simply go to reception you need to wait for the elevator because staircases are locked and meant only as fire exits. Noisy some times as isolation is not very good.
Overall - good value and excellent location.

Hotel Relax location, very close to Taipei Main Station, is great. However, without any sign at the building entrance, it is very difficult to find, especially for foreigners who do not speak chinese. But this problem should be fixed soon.

It is a brand new boutique hotel. The staff is great, very helpful and speak very good English. The bed was very comfortable. There is free wifi as well. Our family room was nicely furnished but unfortunately it had no window. So the room is pretty dark and you cannot get fresh air inside the room.

The main downside is the lack of proper breakfast, they only offer a free coffee.
